Casino Gaming Bureau

The Casino Gaming Bureau was established in 1988 to enforce all New Jersey criminal statutes within the Atlantic City casinos, as well as the provisions of the New Jersey Casino Control Act. In order to accomplish this task the Casino Gaming Bureau works in concert with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (D.G.E.) and the New Jersey Casino Control Commission (C.C.C.). The Division of Gaming Enforcement is a division within the Department of Law & Public Safety, who by statue is responsible for the regulation of the New Jersey casino gaming industry. The Casino Control Commission is an independent agency within the Treasury Department which acts in a quasi-judicial manner ruling on casino licensing applications and assessing penalties for any regulatory violations of the Casino Control Act.

The Casino Gaming Bureau is located in Atlantic City, which is a seaside resort town 11 square miles in size, with a population of 40, 000 citizens. There are currently 12 casinos in Atlantic City with more than one million square feet of gaming floor space. According to the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority yearly more than 34 million people visit Atlantic City.

On average, Bureau personnel conducted more than 1,500 criminal investigations which typically result in more than 800 arrests. Bureau members also issue in excess of 1,100 Hand Summonses yearly for all Disorderly Persons Offenses. All criminal offenses investigated by the members of the Casino Gaming Bureau are prosecuted by the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, Casino Prosecutions Bureau. The bureau provides specialized training in casino gaming enforcement to federal, state, county, and municipal police agencies. The bureau also specializes in performing forensic video enhancements for bureau investigations and outside agencies.
